I don’t know what my favorite is but here is what we normally have (and they are all AMAZING)

We make our broccoli salad whis is so simple and everybody goes nuts for. (we omit bacon because my grandmother is a vegitarian and add craisins instead of raisins for the holiday and usually add whatever nut sounds good that day. Also, balsamic vinegar is a million times better than white wine in this)

My mom makes quiche loraine and quiche florentine

corn casserole which everybody devours

spinach casserole– it looks kinda bleh but I promise, I make her make an extra one just for me to take home and eat the next day!

Sweet potatoe casserole-(My grandmother makes it so I don’t have her exact recipe but this is basically it We used canned yams/sweet potatoes which saves a TON on time!)

My uncle brings broccoli rice casserole… although I am convinced he got it from boston market and “repackaged” it until the stopped selling it because when they stopped, his broccoli rice casserole changed! There is still NO way he makes it himself. lol

And the last one I can remember (Aside from the normal green beans, brussel sprouts, and mashed potatoes) is Honey glazed carrots. They are so easy and so yummy. We use orange juice instead of lemon and omit the parsley but it is good either way.


I am sure you just wanted one but once I got thinking about it… I just couldn’t stop! I can’t wait to make myself fat and not feel guilty about it for a day! lol.

As a Vegan I aim to steer clear away from meat and dairy and these recipes are delicious!

Stovetop stuffing all the way.  I don’t know what it is, but stovetop has always been my favorite.  My dad always made gourmet, fancy stuffing from scratch, and I always felt bad wanting some stovetop! hahaha
